  • Be sure it is well-heated before pouring the batter in. Don't peek until the indicator says it is done. :) Enjoy!

  • make sure your batter not thick or thin in between

  • Don't over fill the iron. Use less than you think you will need and work your way up to the right amount. It is better to have small waffles then for the batter to spill out and burn onto the outside of the iron.

    Slice up some strawberries and break out the whip cream. YUM!

  • Spray it with a non stick cooking spray first. It will occasionally need more but after several uses.

  • I always put a place mat under the waffle maker-I hate messes.

  • Don't overfill and don't let it sit in there too long.

  • I don't know what it is, but I just can't make myself like homemade waffles. I bought a beautiful Cuisinart waffle maker and have made them a couple of times. But I just can't get excited over them. Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? LOL
